A game between Saratoga Springs High School and Ballston Spa High School (N.Y.) had to be cancelled on Tuesday night after Saratoga Springs' Noah Arciero broke the rim on a breakaway dunk. 

Just 1:31 into the game, Arciero's two-handed rim-busting slam put Saratoga Springs up 8-3. Equipment personnel attempted to fix the rim for roughly 15 minutes before announcing that the game would have to be postponed. The teams will resume play on Thursday.
